Scientific Exploration and Discovery

CISL Scientific Exploration and Discovery

Project Description

Scientific exploration and discovery is the newest use case for the Situations Room Infrastructure. The room both learns from and works with experts to transform the decision-making process from an open-loop to a closed-loop with feedback from experts in the room. The first scenario focuses on a group collaboration framework to improve the detection and diagnosis of breast cancer using a human in the loop architecture. It will be demonstrated through medical image informatics and interactive machine learning with human-in-the-loop as a better alternative. Preliminary results show that using a framework in the form of a cognitive room is better for multifaceted tasks like these.
